Animated #games on Nobel Prize #Education

[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none” bg_video=”” class=”” style=””][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]Noble Prize Education has animated games and simulations, based on Nobel Prize-awarded achievements, that let you explore the concepts in a fun and inspiring way. There are games and simulations on tons of topics. Some of the games are easy enough for early elementary aged children, while some are geared to more advanced topics. Through these games you can learn things like what is a blood type, how the immune system works, what are X-rays, how is malaria cured, what is DNA, understand insulin and diabetes, what are conductive polymers, what is genetic code, to name only a few.[/text_output][image alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=”” src=”1065″][image alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=”” src=”1066″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_btn title=”Launch Site” style=”flat” color=”black” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nobelprize.org%2Feducational%2F|title:nobel%20prize%20education|target:%20_blank|” button_block=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” pinterest=”true” email=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h2″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]Find more resources in the same subject area.[/custom_headline][the_grid name=”science”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Periodic Videos

[vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]TED-Ed in collaboration with Brady Haran, best known for his YouTube channel Numberphile and his extensive video coverage of the periodic table, has created an excellent clickable periodic table with videos on every element.[/text_output][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”702″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][blockquote type=”center” cite=”” id=”” class=”” style=””]

In 1864, Dimitri Mendeleev published the first periodic table that organized all the known elements in the world. This tool was groundbreaking for many reasons–including the fact that Mendeleev planned with incredible foresight, leaving space for any new elements that would be discovered beyond his time.

[/blockquote][text_output]Periodic table of elements is a powerful tool for any student of chemistry but unfortunately its strength has been undermined by continuous emphasis over memorizing the elements and their properties. If you are looking for the properties of elements and want to really understand them then this periodic videos site is for you.[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_btn title=”Launch Site” style=”flat” color=”black” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fed.ted.com%2Fperiodic-videos|title:periodic%20videos|target:%20_blank” button_block=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” pinterest=”true” email=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Hunkin’s Experiments

[vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column width=”1/1″][text_output]From making onions glow to growing ant colonies, this website has got hundreds of experiments, illustrated as cartoons. Author of the site is Tim Hunkin who is a cartoonist, broadcaster and engineer.  Most of the experiments require only house hold objects. There are some really neat experiments in there so do check it out.

Grain Chain

[vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column width=”1/1″][text_output]Grain Chain is a fun and interesting website to find out how grains are grown
and harvested, what happens to them before they reach your plate, and why they’re so good for you! Investigate healthy eating and meal planning, or go behind the scenes of the flour, grain and baking industry. With different sections appropriate for different ages, this website gives a very good and thorough understanding of the journey of a loaf!

They have a separate section for classroom recipes where you can find a small collection of easy to make recipes or you can go to the resource bundles page where they have all the videos and activities for things like bread, biscuits and cakes in one place. If you prefer to learn by playing games you can visit the games section although the games are not very interesting.
